Bacon Chocolate Couch Potato Bars

Okay these pictures got pushed to the side and almost lost.  I made these bars several months ago. I would not make these very often but they are great for a once in a blue moon kind of thing.  There are a couple of changes I would make. I will share those as we go.

You might not want to sit on the couch after you try these bars.  There is a little bit of everything in them.
These are a combo of all bad things in a 7 layer bar.
Start by cooking 8 slices of bacon.  Cook this however you like to cook bacon.  I cook mine in the oven.
Now crush up 4 cups pretzel sticks.  I would either use less of these or more of the butter.  They didn't stick together very well.
Here is your crust.
1/4 cup melted butter.  I would use more butter to make it stick together.
3 Tablespoons sugar.  This gives it a little sweetness.
Add these to the food processor.
Pulse together to mix well.
Now dump into a sprayed 9x9 or 8x8 pan.
Press down well.
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Sprinkle on top.
2 cups potato chips
Slightly crush those.
Sprinkle those on top.
Chop the bacon.
Sprinkle the bacon on top.
Yes I used fat free sweetened condensed milk.  Pour the can on top.
Get it all spread out on top.  Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for 20 minutes.
When it comes out of the oven let it cool for 20 minutes.
Then measure out 1/4 cup peanut butter.
Melt the peanut butter in the microwave.
Then pour on top.  As if there wasn't enough goodness in these bars.
The finished product.  Let cool before cutting.
See all the crumbs.  the pretzel layer didn't stick together as well as I would like.  Either use less pretzels or use more butter.
